Discussion Summary

Explorer Harlean shows the group her Ruby HD handheld video magnifier, which she bought after finding that low power glass magnifiers were not sufficient to overcome her vision impairment, and which she likes.

When a  magnifying glass is no longer sufficient, a video magnifier can make reading possible again. The group discusses the features and is impressed with its power and flexibility, but not enthused about the high price.
